Hey everybody! Let's go shopping!

I finally have an income, so of course I went shopping. I went to the Beverly Center in Beverly Hills, cause that's how I roll. I found out there's an H&M in the BC, which caused squealing, jumping, and clapping. (All in my head of course.) I discovered H&M in 2002 while I spent a semester abroad in England and fell in love with the trendy clothes with tiny prices. I came back to California and found out that there were H&M's in America, but on the east coast. Grrr!! Recently they’ve been sprouting up all over the California and the destitute fashionistas rejoice!

Anyhoo, I started shopping and was amused at the revival of the 80's in the “Juniors” department. It was a plethora of primary colors, graffiti print and leggings. The “Ladies” section was truly strange. Half the selections reminded me of grown versions of the dresses my sister and I wore in the seventies; short A-lines dresses, ruffles and high collars. The other half was a collection of stodgy office wear that brought back memories of administrative assistant hell. I did score a two dresses and a shirt that Britney Spears might wear as a dress.

So, I came home with a new hair cut and new clothes. What else could I do but take pictures of myself as if I were on America's Top Model? Wanna see?

I'd like to see you in my office...

Think the skirt's too short?

Hmm...I guess I should read it, right?

What Book Are You?

You're Watership Down!

by Richard Adams

Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're
actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their
assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they
build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd
be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.

Take the Book Quiz

Beauty to my eyes...

Today I woke up and meditated, so I'm feeling pretty calm and peaceful. I find that with the help of Buddhist philosophy I'm able to see the beauty of the world around me as I never have before:

What? I was thirsty.

This was me last night, but with wine. A whole bottle of red wine.

And I was just as cute.


I've been studying Buddhism lately and hope to find less pukey and more productive ways to deal with my anguish and emptiness.

What do you do when you're sad? I'm always up for suggestions.

I just came back from Portland two days ago and I'm pooped. So, rather than come up with some long winded post about my trip I'm gonna go corporate and make some bullet points:

  • I realized I'm in a funk right now. It'll go away, but I'm afraid to say moments of sadness for no obvious reason are gonna follow me the rest of my life.
  • I have accepted that I'm going to be living in the Inland Empire for a few more years, but the fact there are beautiful places out there with interesting people makes me want to continue my education, get a well paying job and get the hell outta here.
  • I'm a little rusty at interacting with people who haven't been my friends for more than ten years. With all the crap I've been through I always worry that I make a bad impression when I'm full tilt Debbye, so I usually hold back a lot. I wish I would've relaxed more, because I think I would've had more fun.
  • The sound a tiger makes is "CHARBROIL!"
  • Camping is fun. No really, it is.

That's all for now, because my brain is currently on cruise control.
